Episode 23: The Steve Vongrimm Experience
We sat down this week with one of the kindest people in the beer business, Steve Vongrimm. Prior to working in craft beer, he worked in a group home and then for CPS. Steve shares how his past experiences inform his current position and how important empathy, authenticity, and relationships are to be successful and happy. Steve now works for Destihl Brewery, located in Normal, Illinois, and he covers their Texas accounts. At this year’s GABF, Destihl was awarded a bronze medal for their Haze of the Dead and a gold medal for Tour Bus. Destihl is also known for making some of the best sours in the game.
It was a pleasure getting to know Steve and hearing his insights on beer and life in general. Listen to the end to hear his unique road trip essential and last day on earth beer choice. He also invites you to Star Sailor Sunday, September 19th, starting at 3:00 pm for their End of Summer Charity BBQ. $20 gets you 2 BBQ meats and 2 sides, and all proceeds go to the Houston Food Bank.
